COVER: MARLOES HORST BY KORAY BIRAND, HARPER’S BAZAAR TURKEY, SEPTEMBER 2012
Posted on August 30, 2012
Now if I saw this cover on the newstands here in the UK, I’d stop, drool, bow and then buy it!
The stunning Marloes Horst strikes an architectural pose, dressed in a leather skirt and patch-worked polo-neck sweater
while gazing deep into my eyes to mirror her surroundings in an absolutely beautiful cover shot by photographer Koray Birand.
Aside from the flawless black and white image and equally flawless face, the addition of Fuscia pink text on the cover of Harpers Bazaar Turkey’s September issue, is a winner for me as it sits perfectly with image rather than dominating it.

I love this just as much. I think the way the masthead gets lost in the shadowed areas of her hair actually works and I love the styling, crop and coloration of the image which convey an “iconic throwback” vibe.
